UNB grad aims to found the Google of health care – Telegraph-Journal
SAINT JOHN – Todd Murphy isn’t kidding when he says he wants his company to become the Google of health care.
From his Prince William Street office, Murphy and his seven full-time staff want to change the way health care is delivered, one prescription at a time.
MedRunner, as the company is called, has already started testing its web-based application with 10 local doctors and 20 pharmacies, and by the end of 2011, Murphy wants to go national.
“I’ve a very intense and competitive guy,” said Murphy, 34, a graduate of the University of New Brunswick’s master’s of business administration program.
“I like a challenge, and obviously taking on the health-care system is a big challenge. But if I’m going to get up and do something, I want to do it right.”
